The anti-American, Israel-boycotting Muslims who rule the United Arab Emirates aren’t stupid when it comes to immigration. In fact, they are smarter and more resolute than we are. First, they expelled all of the Shi’ites a/k/a Hezbollah/Iran supporters, after seeing what Shi’ite unrest has done throughout the Sunni world, whether it’s in Bahrain or Saudi Arabia’s Qatif Peninsula or President Bush’s Iran-backed Shi’ite “democracy” in Iraq. And, now, they are requiring that all those from Asian Muslim nations seeking tourist visas to the UAE must have a college degree. We, in the U.S., on the other hand, take every single Muslim extremist and uneducated moocher there is (not that a college degree means “educated” anymore–it just means someone lasted through four years of partying and wanton sex, but in other countries it actually means something).
Tourists from South Asian countries that export labour to the UAE will require a university degree to get a visa as the rich Gulf state fights an illegal influx, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
Electricians, pipe fitters, masons, farmers, drivers, tailors and cleaners from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Philippines are now banned from obtaining a tourist visa, Gulf News daily said citing a senior immigration official.
The new measure sets a university degree as a prerequisite to obtain a visa, the official said.
“The Federal Residency Department… has decided to adopt stricter regimes for tourist, visit and conference visas to curb the influx of blue-collar workers from many labour exporting countries,” said the official.
“This would help significantly reduce the risk that individuals engaged in organised crime or the trafficking of persons could gain entry to the country,” he said. . . .
Tourism grew rapidly in the UAE, especially in the glitzy emirate of Dubai, where the number of tourists increased to 9.3 million in 2011, up 10 percent from the previous year.
The UAE has millions of foreign workers, mostly from South Asian countries.
The expat-dominated population is estimated to have grown to around 8.2 million by the end of 2010, with UAE nationals making up only 11.47 percent.
They aren’t stupid over there the way we are when it comes to their fellow co-religionists. Illegal aliens and visa holders who do meet their standards have no rights and cannot apply for asylum, citizenship, or entitlements.
That’s why they laugh at us, as they shore up their own borders, while ours are ever more porous.
